Chateau Du Taureau - Review

This imposing island fort was built in 1542 to protect the Bay of Morlaix from the marauding British. It has since been used as a stronghold, a prison, a Nazi base, a resort and even a sailing school. This lively history led to it being declared a national monument, and it is now a tourist favourite.

The best way to get to the fort is by boat from Carantec. These trips don’t sail every day however. You’ll have to check the attraction website for a detailed schedule of visit. It’s best to take the guided tour, after which you’re free to roam.

The highlights of trip are:

  • The theatrical or narrated guided tour (in French)
  • The picnic area
  • The views from the top of the fort
  • The boat ride from either Carantec
  • The birds discovery workshop

Chateau Du Taureau, Morlaix Reviews

  • We travelled from Plouganach harbour and had a 30 minute boat ride with some announcements in French for local pointers - such as the navigation methods in these rocky waters. The fort is very well kept and 1 hour is about right. Stunning setting.

  • We took the boat (pre-booked) from Plougasnou Port de Diben. I booked by phone and then collected the tickets on arrival. The Château was fascinating with fabulous views from the top. A sea mist descended quickly on the way back, despite the beautiful weather beforehand. A good day trip and unusual destination.

  • Nice historic place!

  • Nice location

  • Looked great from the cliffs opposite.
